Dr Charles Heisterkamp III Passes

Dear Lancaster Camera Club Members & Friends,

I painfully regret to inform you that at noon today we have lost Dr. Charles Heisterkamp III. This loss will be felt by both our club and our community for a long time to come. I would like to thank all of you who were able to attend our annual club picnic at his home just a few weeks ago. It meant the world to him to be able to share all that he had with all of us. For those of you who didn’t know Doc, he was one of our former President and a Board Member. His illness made it impossible to continue his duties as President and he resigned in Jan. of this year. He remained an active Board Member right until the very end. It was a privilege to work with him, he enjoyed working with all of us.

The family is planning a memorial service for him on Sunday Oct. 7th, and he will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery. More information on this event may be included in his obituary and I will certainly pass along more details when they become available. I ask that you please keep his family in your prayers at this difficult time. Condolences may be sent to Diane and The Heisterkamp Family at 1949 Pine Drive, Lancaster, PA 17601. Doc was surrounded by his family and he was not in pain which is all any of us could ever ask for. I look forward to seeing all of you soon, God Bless.

— Heather Shugars, LCC President.
